Safety officials at Hill Air Force Base are concerned the long winter months have lulled motorists into complacency when it comes to spotting motorcycles on the road.

But they’ll be out in numbers, and hard to miss, this week.

Hundreds are expected to participate Wednesday in the base’s third annual See Me, Save Me motorcycle ride through Davis and Weber counties, an event to promote motorcycle awareness and safety on roads and highways.

A May 22 report by the Governors Highway Safety Association said that from January to September 2011, 26 Utah motorcyclists died in crashes, down from 32 in 2010.

"We’re hoping to garner as much on- and off-base participation as possible in this year’s ride," said Allan Woods, the base’s safety officer, in a news release. "Our goal is to show vehicle operators just how many motorcyclists are sharing the road with them."

In previous years, the event has drawn more than 300 riders.

Hill motorcyclists stage at 10:30 a.m. at the base’s Motorcycle Safety Range behind the South Gate Visitors Center. They will meet up with off-base riders 15 minutes later in the parking lot of the Hill Aerospace Museum (7961 Wardleigh Road in Roy).

The ride is free and open to the public. No registration is required.
